Your Favorite Dog-Proof Window Treatments For Denver

December 16, 2021

Puppies love gazing out the windows and snoozing in a sunbeam, but they can be rough on window treatments. They swipe at them, bite them, and rip them down. While no window covering is 100% unbreakable, faux-wood shutters are the most dog-proof window treatments in Denver. These beautiful interior shutters will not crumble easily, wipe down quickly, and allow every member of your family--slobbery ones included--many ways to enjoy natural light, privacy and the view outside.

Polywood Shutters Are Tough Dog-Proof Window Treatments In Denver

Window coverings like window shades, blinds, and drapery look fine in your place, but with their hanging fabric, all it takes is a single pull from your furry friend to bring them off the rod or break them. Polywood shutters are great dog-proof window treatments for Denver families, because of their resilience. They have reliable Polywood panels that link to the frame surrounding your window and won’t hang down like curtains or drapery or snap with a little jolt like blinds. Interior shutters don’t have wands or cords for your pooch to chew on or get wrapped up in either. Bowser can swipe at your interior shutters and rub against them all she wants without breaking them. And if the dog tries to eat a louver, that solitary louver can be removed and replaced without having to taking down the entire window treatment.

Polywood Shutters Allow Your Dog Peek Outside

Every furry friend needs to see outside, but you may not want want neighbors looking into your living room. Polywood shutters use solid louvers that you tilt open just enough to give your pooch enough room to see outside without sacrificing your privacy. Polywood shutters can also be custom-made to work with shaped windows like picture windows and sidelights. If your pup swipes at the front window when the doorbell rings, put up Polywood shutters so that it can find out if it’s a barkable stranger ringing the bell.

You are able to direct energy-efficiency with Polywood shutters too. If you want to have a room dim and cooler at the sunniest part of the day, but Fluffy likes to lie in a sunbeam, move the louvers to direct your sunbeams at the rug. Or install shutters featuring a split tilt rod. This feature allows you use the lower louvers for your dog and keep the top ones closed to stop sun glare.

Polywood Shutters Make Cleaning After Your Dog A Snap

Like every rugs and furniture, window treatments can be covered with dog hair and dander. You can use many methods to clean up, but de-griming Polywood shutters is pretty easy. Just rub them with a dry duster or cloth, and they’ll be free of pet hair. If you find dirty paw prints or nose smudges on your shutters, a wet rag works perfectly fine. As for wet messes, Polywood shutters are moisture-resistant. If your pooch runs in from the rain or snow and shakes off the fur, or your rambunctious pup salivates on your shutters, just scrub them dry.

Polywood Shutters Can Be Fixed Instead Of Replaced

Polywood shutters are extremely durable but not undestroyable. If Fido sees your louvers as a chew toy, he’s going to create some dents. Luckily, Polywood shutters are easy to mend.
